This multi-scenario escape room in a box is perfect for MacGyver fans and escape room fanatics alike.
MacGyver: The Escape Room Game brings the challenge of an escape room straight to the comfort of a player’s home. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, this escape room in a box includes five, individual, hour-long missions that will require players to use their mind as the ultimate weapon.
MacGyver’s team must use the interactive website to guide them through the missions, while keeping in contact with their operative at the Phoenix Foundation to track their progress.
Players will need to work together and use the tools at hand to solve puzzles and diffuse bombs. Think outside of the box, as you discover secret codes, take on high-risk missions, and face off against a familiar foe.
“Pressman’s escape room game is unique since players have to ‘MacGyver’ their way through the missions by using ordinary, everyday objects like a paperclip,” said David Norman, President of Pressman Toy Corporation.
Missions are inspired by episodes from the original show. You will work together to escape from an underground laboratory, land an airplane, survive a dangerous factory, flee from a missile silo and outsmart Murdoc in the grand finale.
Will MacGyver save the day, or will it end in disaster? Designed for 1 – 4 players, ages twelve and up.
I recently received a MacGyver The Escape Room Game In A Box to review. Thankfully, I had a little help from some family members. Three teenagers and an adult gave this game a try.
There was some confusion in the beginning. After rereading the instructions (several times) and giving it about an hour try, we lost two of the teens. My brother in-law and nephew were much more determined to stick it out and play the game.
The feedback I received was that this is a creative thinking game with a clever concept. Probably more enjoyable during an adult game night, rather than with kids. There was a lot of going back and fourth, looking in mirrors and discussions while cracking codes. The two players decided to end the night after making progress and agreeing to leave the game out to pick back up the next day. I heard once they got the hang of it, it was a lot of fun.
